Delamere Forest, 1987

By Tristan Louth-Robins on March 1, 2018 6:57 am

This month I've decided to employ my old Tascam 424 Portastudio (bought in 2000) and use its grungy tape heads and a battery of 1970s era C90s as a means of recording and manipulating sounds. The 424 is pretty versatile with its aux inputs and pitch settings, so this can do some interesting things to recordings. I particularly like to emphasise hiss and biased signal to noise A LOT when I do this kind of thing.

This week I've taken my inspiration from a scattered memory of becoming lost in a remote forest at twilight when I was six. I think forests might be the recurrant theme for the month - tape hiss and old memories in eeire places pretty much equate to hauntology.
